"The multinational exercises Trident Juncture-18 started in Norway with the participation of NATO member countries and partners. Ukraine is among them. These powerful exercises are designed to confirm the Alliance's readiness to respond to new types of threats, in particular, hybrid warfare and propaganda," Poroshenko wrote on Facebook on Friday.
